Dámh­scoil con­tin­ues Irish bardic tra­di­tion

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

Dámh­scoil Mhúscraí Uí Fhloinn con­tin­ues the Irish bardic tra­di­tion, con­ven­ing for its an­nual gath­er­ing in the Abbey Ho­tel, Baile Mhúirne, on Sat­ur­day Oc­to­ber 21.

Based on the old bardic po­etry schools, the Dámh­scoil was founded in 1925 by Pádraig Mac Suib­hne (An Suib­h­neach Meann) from Cúil Aodha; Pádraig Ó Cru­alaoi (Gael na nGael) of Baile Mhúirne, and Dó­nal Ó Ceocháin, a na­tive of Car­bery. Each year, the Dámh­scoil is­sues an in­vi­ta­tion in verse, to which those at­tend­ing may choose to re­ply, again in the form of Irish lan­guage po­etry, usu­ally touch­ing on top­i­cal day.

In ad­di­tion to the Dámh­scoil, which be­gins at 7pm, this year the event will in­cor­po­rate a po­etry work­shop for young peo­ple at 2pm, led by Irish lan­guage rap poet Séa­mus Barra Ó Súil­leab­háin.
